Title: How to publish in top Journals / Organization Science

Abstract: In this conference, Michaël Bikard, Professor of Strategy & Innovation at INSEAD and Editor in charge of the innovation area in Organization Science (an FT50 Journal), will engage in discussion with the audience about the stakes and methods for publishing in top management journals. Drawing on his own experience as an author and reviewer for journals such as ASQ, Management Science, SMJ, and Organization Science, as well as his work as Editor of Organization Science, he will share insights on the “dos and don’ts” of publication, how to navigate the publication process, and the different stages involved in proposing papers suitable for such journals. He will also discuss emerging research topics and promising areas for ongoing research in the fields of strategy and innovation.

This conference will be followed by a cocktail at the cafeteria.

Michaël Bikard researches how individuals and firms use new knowledge as a source of competitive advantage. For example, what are the drivers of scientific advances? Under which conditions are firms and individuals able to exploit opportunities emerging from those advances? To find answers to those questions, he takes advantage of “natural experiments.” For example, he developed a new method that uses simultaneous discoveries in science in order to conduct the first “twin studies” of new knowledge.
His work has been published in leading management journals including the Administrative Science Quarterly, Management Science, Strategic Management Journal and Organization Science. His research has also received a number of awards, including first place in the MIT Sloan Doctoral Research Forum, the MIT Energy Fellowship, the Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship, the J Robert Beyster Fellowship and an NSF SBE Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant.
Before joining INSEAD, Professor Bikard was on the faculty of the London Business School. He completed his PhD at MIT Sloan in the Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management group.
